October Art Journal Calendar & 31 Products

Hi Everyone! It's a new month (well, 3 days in!), so today I'm sharing my art journal calendar for October.

I started by using my finger to make the circles of Fresco Acrylic paint, then I sprinkled on some warm shades of PaperArtsy Infusion powders and activated them with a spritz of water. I stamped a Carabelle Studio leaf with white and black ink, added white paint splatters, then stamped the title and added the day numbers. I've used warm shades and my comfort colours of blue and green, so I'm entering this spread for Linda's 'Creature Comforts' Challenge at Art Journal Journey.

Next I have a couple more pages to share for Birgit Koopsen's 31 Products Challenge on Instagram.

Day Two - Modelling Paste - I made patterns with the end of a paintbrush, splashed on some tea and finished with some found book text. I couldn't find a tea-related phrase, so the coffee one was the next best thing! Lol!

Day Three - Adirondak Colour Wash Spray - I spritzed Raisin, Terracotta and Cranberry through a Seth Apter stencil, outlined in black, then added some found book text.

Hope you're all having a fab and arty week,

Alison xox
